'The world is still deceived by ornament' Venice is a multi-cultural melting pot and the trading centre of the world, a place where everything has a value. High stakes are placed on beauty and choices are made on appearance rather than reality. But when one of three boxes holds all you've ever wanted, should you really decide on looks alone?

Author Shakespeare.

First Encounters with Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice is a new production specially created for 7-13 year olds. Directed by Robin Belfield, it uses an edited version of the original text to bring Shakespeare's story of justice and mercy to life in just 90 minutes.
